And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. – Ephesians 6:18
All of history’s great revivals have one attribute in common – people fervently prayed for them. In November 1949 in the Hebrides Islands, two elderly women in their 80’s were troubled at the state of their parish – not one young person attended church. These two women were moved to action and decided to pray about it. They met twice a week and prayed from 10pm – 3am. The women invited the church leaders and elders to pray with them.
A few weeks later Scottish preacher Duncan Campbell visited the island to preach. These women had a clear vision that he was supposed to stay and lead. During his time on Lewis Island, revival broke out and hundreds of people came to know Christ. On the first day of the revival, 122 young people were saved.
“Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”
– Karl Barth said “To clasp the hands in prayer is the beginning of an uprising against the disorder of the world.” Where is the disorder y(our) world?
– Take 10min+ to name it and pray into it.
– Pray for the hurting, lonely, and oppressed.
